However, both the positions keep the spine in its natural curve so you can choose any of the above. The only problem with the back position is that it makes you snore a lot. But it’s a really small problem as compared to the one you are facing.

Moderate Position to Sleep In

Side position helps you to keep your spine in its natural position and improves blood circulation. Apart from improving your posture, it also helps you with acid reflux, heartburn, sagging, and wrinkles.

The only problem you would have to face inside the position will be a little ache in the arms only in the case if it comes under your body pressure. Other than that, everything is fine.

Just like the back-position side position is also divided into three parts, the first two, the Log and the Yearner are fine as they don’t cause any problem, but the last one that you should never sleep in is the fetus position.

The reason is, in this position your head and knees are bent inside resulting in the irregular curves in your spine. So, try avoiding this position if possible.
